Colourful Relaxed Party Wedding at a Warehouse

Chloe and Phil had a vision for a relaxed and fun wedding, without too many formalities. They wanted a party theme to run throughout the day, with plenty of streamers, bright colours and a disco ball or two. “We wanted it to basically be a big party and celebration of us and everyone we loved”, the bride said. “We love going out and socialising so we wanted that to be the theme for our wedding, a party!”

The couple wanted a traditional Catholic ceremony, in line with Phil’s faith, and chose his late Granny’s church in a tribute to her. Chloe told us, “Phil’s parents were married there so it holds special memories for their family and now it does ours too which is so lovely. We had Better Man by Paolo Nutini as I walked down the aisle, and You’ve got the Love by Florence and the Machine on the way back. The whole ceremony went perfectly, but a favourite moment was just after we had exchanged our rings and kissed, everyone cheered and we went straight into song. The sun was shining through the windows and it just felt like such a happy moment!”

Relaxed meets Retro Pub Wedding with Masses of Florals

Starting their relationship as ‘frenemies’ in a local bar, arguing over which beer was superior, it was fitting that Cass and Mat’s wedding was held in their favourite pub, The Royston Hotel, in Richmond, Australia. Fifteen years after they met, the couple wanted their day to be like the best night at your favourite pub with your closest buddies. With a relaxed vibe and informal dress code, they cranked up the music and cracked open the drinks.

“We wanted the atmosphere in the pub to mimic the feeling you get in those last few minutes, when you’re eagerly waiting for your favourite band to step on stage.” Cass explained. Music was an integral part of the day, with Mat putting a lot of time and thought into creating a playlist for the ceremony to amp up the excitement. They chose You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall & Oates after they had been officially married, and the bridal party then walked out to Dean Martin’s Not the Marrying Kind.

Relaxed & Minimal Massachusetts Beach Wedding

Marissa and Nick bonded over their mutual love of Dashboard Confessional on Twitter in 2014. They finally went on their first date just before Nick left for Warped tour with his band Vanna, and the rest, as they say, is history! 

“We knew we’d be on our annual beach wedding when we wanted to get married,” Marissa told us, “so we decided to get married there too. Everything was super relaxed, and due to covid it was just as an our families present. It was so nice to have something that felt normal in the midst of everything.”

Relaxed, Boho Wedding with A Floral Dress

Ava and Nic were actually introduced by Ava’s dad. “Nic had met my dad at a local Trap Shooting Club,” Ava told us. “But the first time we saw each other Nic was hanging out the side of his best friend’s ride (haha) They beeped at me at me sitting at an intersection and waved to me. Apparently I sped away and he knew I stole his heart right then.’

Planning a 2020 wedding mean there was the obvious spanner in the works – COVID – but the couple scaled things back to an intimate affair in their own backyard. “Like for many couples, planning a 2020 wedding sucked but it did bring us closer together and made us realise what is really important; our love for one another. And now we get the best of both worlds! A small, intimate, family wedding ceremony and a large party and celebration later on!”

Relaxed, Intimate, Californian Beachside Two-Day Wedding

Carolina and Sam met while studying at the University of London several years ago. With Carolina from San Diego and Sam from Devon, they did many years of long distance while they they continued their studies separately, finally managing to settle down together in California to get married in August 2019.

They wanted to move away from a lot of the traditional symbolism and formal elements of a wedding to create a celebration that felt true to who they are. They didn’t have a single theme, but tried to work in accents that would tie everything together and create a relaxed and comfortable vibe. As Sam’s family were travelling long distance, they wanted to make the most of the California coastal location so opted for an outdoor ceremony and reception.

Dog-Friendly, Informal Country Pub Wedding with A Whole Lotta Lilac!

As self-confessed animal lovers, there was one non-negotiable when it came to Maja and Ryan choosing their wedding venue; whether or not they allowed dogs. The Silent Woman Inn in Dorset is nestled within the tranquil Wareham Forest, which really set the tone for their laid back day. 

They were delighted to be able to involve their beloved pup Mojito in their wedding – they had always planned to bring their first dog, Mania, with them too, but sadly she passed away a month before. They were able to include her memory, though, with Maja attaching Mania’s name tag to her bouquet and using it as her something blue.
